Brazil: defending champions made a great start under a new name. Win also for Blumenau

2 min read

No surprises in the matches of the Brazilian Superliga played last european night.

Former EMS Taubaté Funvic, now under a new name, start 2021/22 Brazilian Volleyball Championship with the right foot against Goiás Vôlei.
After a turbulent summer during which they left Taubaté due to the lack of financial support and started a legal battle against the Brazilian federation (CBV), the Superliga two-time champions debuted in the new season with confidence.
Now under the new name, Vôlei Funvic Natal, new base city, Natal, and a recontructed roster without stars such as Bruninho, Borges, Douglas Souza, Maurício Souza, they beat the league’s newcomers Goiás 3-0 (25:14, 25:19, 25:15) at Nélio Dias, the hall that will be their new home instead of Ginásio do Abaeté.

In the other match Blumenau, even if imprecise in the second part of the match, defeats the modest Uberlandia 3-1 (who also lost their best players in the summer).
Sadly, even today no team was able to publish the match statistics on the competition’s official website, in a clear signal of the organizational and economic crisis of this Superliga.
The Super Cup will be played on Tuesday between the favorite Sada Cruzeiro and Funvic Natal who showed a good condition.
